Format: Paperback
Who: A new cast of characters, worlds and empires!
What: The very beginning of the Je'daii Order, before the advent of the Lightsaber
When: 36,453 BBY (Before the Battle of Yavin in Star Wars 4: A New Hope)
Where: Ando Prime and the Deep Core on planet Tython

When the story opens, I was entranced. The art is excellent with great scenery as the reader is walked through the background of the story.

For thousands of years, people would gather on Ando Prime to meditate at the base of a pyramid-like structure high in snow peaked, jagged mountain ranges. And then one day everything changed. The mountainous Tho Yor opens its doors and those meditating enter. Everything after this is all bonus and too easy to ruin with possible spoilers.

The writing is incredibly smooth. There's no confusion between narrative and dialogue. Even between action scenes, the story keeps the reader engaged by developing some very interesting characters. There is a very strong female main character, who is not perfect, but is definitely one to remember.

If you are one of those who think the good guys come out unscathed, you are in for a surprise. The bad guys in this story will make you wonder if the Je'daii can take them down. This whole line of suspense building is very well done. It's consistent and entertaining, beginning to end.

My only disappointment is that now there is yet another backfill story awaiting. Where did the Tho Yor come from and what is in those mysterious diamond shaped craft? But maybe this will be received well by other readers, knowing that the ultimate beginning of the Force is still out there in someone's creative plans, with more clues than we had before.

Format: Paperback
So a really long time ago, "approximately" 36,453 years before Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, the Thor Yor gathered together people from distant planets and brought them to the planet Tython at the galactic core, where they could study the Force. You'd think they would have become Tythonians but instead they became Tythans, a spelling change that only the Force truly understands. The Tythans learned to meditate. They learned to balance the darkness and the light. Mostly, they learned how to kick ass. They called themselves the Je'daii. The Je'daii warriors eventually battled Queen Hadiya, a despotic ruler who defied the will of the Force. How stupid was she?

For the first twenty pages, the story is told in narrative (i.e., not a lot of dialog balloons) which makes sense given that the story is largely an historical overview. The story then shifts to the Infinite Empire's attempt to cull those who might be sensitive to the Force from every planet they find. After a Force Hound senses the planet Tython, Predor Tul'Kar claims the right to conquer it. A Force Hound named Xesh arrives on Tython, leading to Force-wielding battles with Je'daii-in-training, while Je'daii masters try to prevent the dark side from engulfing their world.

Dawn of the Jedi tells an interesting, multi-faceted story that links a variety of worlds and early Jedi warriors. The themes are familiar: light vs. dark, the need for balance, impetuous youth who don't listen to their sage elders. Speaking of balance, the story does a nice job of balancing development of the Jedi history with blistering action. The prose isn't bad at all and the artwork, supported by vivid coloring, is richly detailed. This is a worthy addition to the Star Wars legacy. I would give it 4 1/2 stars if I could.

Star Wars is back with an all new story. It takes place before the sith and republic even exist and has an enemy the includes a race of aliens featured in the first KOTOR game. You see things before the movies and see planets that are in the movies but are very different. This is in a time were sith do not exist but instead are replaced by Force Hounds blood hungry dark siders. This volume takes alot old myths for previous books and makes them real. All in all a very intresting comic that needs to be read. All i gotta say is FORCESABER. Youll understand.

I admit I wasn't initially interested in the Dawn of the Jedi series. The prospect of finding out about the origins of the Jedi Order didn't particularly tantalize me the way new stories about existing characters did. There was so much going on in the Old Republic and Legacy Eras it seemed silly to have stories set in another one.

I am pleasantly surprised to say I was mistaken in my assumptions. Dawn of the Jedi is the best Star Wars material I've read in years. It's almost equal to Knights of the Old Republic, which is high praise for anyone who knows my opinion of Zayne Carrick.

Dawn of the Jedi does something different with the Jedi, which is something I had long despaired of seeing. The Jedi Knights of the DOTJ period are a diverse and multifaceted lot. They have family troubles, relationship issues, doctrinal differences, and even varying senses of fashion.

There was a weird moment when I was looking at a couple of Jedi with one of them being a shirtless flirtatious Sith hunk and the other being a sexy blonde with a low-cut outfit. Initially, I thought this was just the comic providing fanservice before I realized these Jedi don't wear robes because the attachment issue (and, by proxy, sex) isn't a big issue.

Which is the central crux of the setting: that the ancient Jed'aii didn't fear the Dark Side. Much like Luke Skywalker, they are beings who have grown stronger for their association with multiple types of beings and being willing to stretch their philosophical assumptions. Most notably, the Jed'aii believe in Balance rather than the Light Side.

This has its dangers. There's a couple of parts to the Jed'aii's story which are unsettling.
